Being a Bad Alumni Fanboy

Go BearsNot going to make it for the Crew Classic finals on Sunday this year, though I still hope to get out there Saturday to cheer for Cal during the prelims.  I’ll miss being able to hit the alumni tent.  Haven’t made it for the finals for a few years now, and I’m starting to feel like a slacker.

Go BearsHopefully the timing will work out better next year. The Bears don’t come this far south for very many sports, and I don’t get north, especially during the college sports seasons, nearly as often as I’d like to.

Catching The Sunrise So You Don’t Have To

Howling Point’s always been about giving back, at least when it’s not about ranting at something.  No one should have to get up before the sun, unless they have anxious dogs or husbands who need rides to the airport.  So, this morning, since I had both, I scooted down to Coronado after dropping Randy at Terminal One and shot this timelapse.

Sunrise: San Diego from Coronado from Chuck Hartley on Vimeo.

I had no idea Coronado had so many early dog walkers, and enjoyed a couple of good chats while the GoPro did its time lapse thingee. After abandoning the last two efforts at capturing timelapse sunrises/sunsets due to boring weather and a camera glitch respectively, I was very happy this one came out as it did.  Not the most dramatic sunrise ever, but peaceful and very San Diego.

Missing the previous (posted) efforts?  Here are Santa Cruz, the Port San Luis, San Clemente Pier and La Jolla Cove.

The doggies don’t realize that meat isn’t going on the grill until the drink is finished. #Spock #Diego #Onofre #darkandstormy

Diego came home with us seven years ago today. Still the cutest little puppy, even if he is the oldest being in the house these days.

Exploring

Part of the birthday extravagance was one of the new Balboa Park Explorer passes.  One year of access to most of the museums.  Hung out for a couple of hours this morning after a prospective client cancelled on me at the last minute, and caught this at the Japanese Friendship Garden.

I wish I could swim as fast as that photo makes it look like I’m swimming. I’ll take the ego boosting effect though. #lajollacove #gopro #quicksilver #aquasphere
